Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

(gedit:8968): GnomeUI-WARNING **: While connecting to session manager:

The problem was in launching the gedit program. From what you posted, it looks like you already su'd to root, so you don't need to use sudo to launch commands as root. Sometimes, root isn't allowed access to the X screen. If that is the case, see if you have the program "sux". Using "sux" instead of su will allow the root user to launch GUI programs. Another way is to use the kdesu program, but I don't know if you have kde installed. Another option is to use a console based editor such as vim or emacs. You will need to learn a little bit about using vim if you want to edit the "sudoers" file ( which requires using the "visudo" program ).
You will want to identify the drive or partition that you want mounted. The "fdisk -l" command will help there.
